ms. burstein - here you are with the second ex-american guest today, and you spend time "translating" the pronunciation of common english words like "tomato", or the pronunciation of "france"--as if your audience won't understand the continental pronunciations of either word!

please stay away from these silly diversions from the subject at hand. the lopate audience is far more intelligent than you think. it only makes you sound petty.

I've picked autumn wine grapes - without protection - surrounded by bees and not been touched except by accident - not stung - do they get drunk as it is said?
